Transcript INTRODUCTION. The English public has already had placed before it data and intelligence respecting the political and social condition of the island of Cuba. Four years of a war, unexampled in the annals of modern history; a war sustained by an unarmed, but resolute and decided people against the whole maritime and military power of Spain, could not quietly pass over without exciting the attention of the world and, above all, of the enlightened people of this country, so deeply interested in the study of the great problems which are ever presenting themselves in this age of progress and universal change. The knowledge acquired, however, depended until quite recently, entirely upon the affirmatory or contradictory assertions of the parties directly interested in the prosecution of the sanguinary struggle which is taking place. The Cubans on the one hand resolute and earnest in the defence of their violated rights, and the Spanairds on the other fiercely determined at any cost to preserve their dominion and their ancient privileges, could not be satisfactory sources of information for people far removed from the scene of strife and not concerned in the result, if, indeed, any community could remain unconcerned whilst questions involving the great principles of right and justice were being decided. More impartial witnesses, more authoritative utterances were needed to carry home to all hearts, conviction and assurance of the truth ; and these witnesses and these utterances are now forthcoming to dissipate any doubts which may have existed with respect to the real nature and primary causes of the Cuban revolution.
